it's eight am in the russian capital you're watching r t with me arena josh welcome to the program where shuffling the world's arcade political stage russia's why the reporting and his chinese counterpart are looking to lay the brakes and beijing today for mayor a space to nano development in an a g there is much on the table of more on the much hyped meeting and what's at stake cost that joins us live from beijing good morning to marina so what's really important hoping to achieve today. well more now first of all it's important to mention that this is prime minister vladimir putin's first visit since announcing his cabinet see in the upcoming presidential elections and this may signal a change in focus for russia for many years the west has been dominated the political stage for russia china's economic progress may have moscow in the sense many analysts are saying that the strategic partnership between the two biggest and
fastest growing economies in the world could shift the power balance in the world now both nations have supported each other throughout the years on issues related to sovereignty security and development they also have similar political views and we've seen this just recently when both of them vetoed the european draft the u.n. security resolution which was condemning syria and was suggesting that it could face sanctions if it continue this crackdown on protesters now both the countries are also members of the brics alliance along with india brazil and south africa and the concern of economic uncertainty in europe and the u.s. has seriously undermined the dominance of europe and the uighurs all of the world political stage and it has cleared the way for emerging powers such as russia and china. both the countries are also important partners this year china has climbed.
the back up and passing germany and it's now russia's number one trade partner and actually. said that he expects that number this year could reach seven be a billion dollars and by twenty twenty that one that number to grow to one hundred billion also the russian prime minister today is expected to sign a sweeping cooperation on technical modernization and what this means is that china will benefit from russia's leadership in nuclear energy space and aviation now russia on the other hand will take advantage of chinese superiority in high speed rail transport power generation equipment and alternative energy production and of course this meeting comes as both countries celebrate ten years since they signed the treaty of good neighborly ness and friendly cooperation and just recently president meeting with a bit of said that he's happy with the steadily consolidating bilateral trade economic scientific and technical toys and officials from both countries have actually said that this is the best their relationship has been in years and today
will of course be. the strength from that. ok marina thanks very much indeed for bringing us the subject from beijing. and still had for you this hour here on r t the eurozone hangs by brad slovakia votes on a crucial deal which could decide the fate of debt strapped european nations and plans to bail them out. as u.s. banks are being kicked all around the u.s. are the reports from away which has to join occupy wall street's movement. ukraine's former prime minister you with uma shankar will face a court verdict later on tuesday she's on trial over charges related to alleged dodgy gas contracts with russia are teams like her she ask you looks at the case which itself faces allegations of being politically motivated. the biggest trial of
the decade. the judge. to deliver his verdict on. the country. being accused of several economic crimes one of which according to the prosecution. deals with. the main point which is being speculated whether you will go to prison. now. this is the area for her but at the same time been lots of criticism coming from the european union. and many experts believe. may be exchanged for the possible integration with the european union.
but she will be unable to run for parliament next. automatically rule her out of the twenty fifteen presidential election. has been very. several months with those. against her. since the end of july the beginning of one of the deputies from. the day when the. verdict would be voiced by the judge in this court would probably mean a lot. on the streets. with the police. reporting there. if you want to catch.
us. take a look at what's available for you there now the siberian search for the secret of sasquatch an expedition hands out into the wilds of russia to find out if big food really does exist. venter of the iconic forty seven wins a case in a swiss court after the name of his famous collage think of rival comes under attack brings company. the eurozone is agonizingly close to accepting and new bailout plan for debt strapped nations but the file step could be a tough one little slovakia is the stumbling blog of the last country to ratify the agreement and push the deal through r.t. sarah ferguson has been following this story. greece might are being smug bang at
the center of attention recently is the u.s. saying quite this rumbles on another member states of being off debate on the european stability fund we take a look at how these other countries ok playing with the pressure all eyes are on slovak here today to see if politicians will vote positively on the european stability fund to aid ailing countries like greece as the last member state viki's decision is crucial to take a look at this t.v. ad for a popular slave beer it announces to want to borrow from everyone that is greek not wanting to lend to grace that is slovak a tongue in cheek has captured the mood of the people here perfectly. here is not a rich country we need money for our healthcare system homeless for our elderly. as the second poorest country in the year is a slave axeman a reason why they should help the richer nations they view as having spent more
than they could afford and political dissent is met there is uncertainty about whether the leading coalition party will be able to get the votes they need for the bailout funds to go ahead the approval of all seventeen countries that use the single currency is needed. doesn't want to look like a member. or not. i see there's a strong pressure from from other european countries and. probably too weak to resist if it doesn't prefer the plan slovakia be expected to contribute about seven point seven billion year a to the pot which would taste about four hundred forty billion year i believe years in countries like spain and italy making increasingly unstable many critics are saying that even this will not be enough but it's a dead end every so often. it's the final solution to the
problem and they say it will take these marches but this will be the end of it and this is like the end of the tunnel that will come out and what we see is an endless . austerity. depression. leading to more measures leading to more depression and people realize now that you've got to break out of that despite facing an outpouring of public discontent germany managed to post the measures at the end of last month but instead of i care many have remained strictly it pays to do sting the fund that taxpayer is paying a penny. the. situation is not sustainable in greece. amounts to be pledged are so huge that it really doesn't make sense and they see that it doesn't make sense to them and i think it's like politicians we all see that there are also other alternatives let's look at the czech republic they don't have euro they are doing quite well they don't need. common currency and at the same time that they don't have to pledge money and so on loans to other countries
the decision of the small member state today could have a big impact on the plans for the bad out fund because the debt crisis continues to be felt in the richest member states to the poorest is no global concern about just where this is going to and search. athens. are disguising reports getting to the roots of the ravaging financial crisis and here's a preview of what's coming up at around seven thirty am g.m.t. . those are sort of accounts from old ladies sitting on fortunes and every single month they get their statement and they get out their magnifying glass and they try to figure out of the bank stole money from them this month but they're very good at doing it so they can pick it up and or other pension accounts or their teachers or their firemen remember all these public workers accounts they're being vilified because they want a living wage meanwhile their pensions are being destroyed by bank of new york and other banks so they're getting really gangbang from both directions.
it started in wall street but the movement of people who say their lives have been ruined by bankers big business and government is spreading across the united states and beyond over a thousand protesters hit the streets of los angeles joining the occupy wall street activist who started the movement around a month ago in new york. has a story problem way. oh protesters took over a bank of america branch in los angeles and were willing to get arrested in order to send a clear message to wall street he was to say to make a good show he'd stolen all the money from the land and we. want to have a thousand people have taken to the streets of los angeles now this movement a group of people from occupy los angeles in solidarity with high wall street and
we have here people who have just been foreclosed on plenty of police here in force in order to keep this crowd in check the anti-corporate mobilizations which started in new york are spreading and now some of the most affected by the nation's economic crisis are joining in rose goodell received an eviction notice after falling behind on her mortgage payments i was a worker and was told that i was not for nothing. but also knowing my pay she believes that this type of political action will bring results and they've been really governing out of but i might just take it and there has to be a dad and i think this is the stand that you're seeing at this point from struggling homeowners to the unemployed people of all walks of life are becoming in boulder and by the recent street demonstrations we had to go. to my job they could
not make. the basket be a hobby or side of me and used to work at an auto parts plant he is part of the four point five million people who have been unemployed for more than a year now this father of two is struggling to hold on to his home diverse groups have made up the mobilization in cities across america in recent weeks as more people become inspired to vent their frustration with our financial and. political institutions. there's still uncertainty about whether these protests will cause direct change or whether other self interest will try to capitalize on the popularity but it appears that the financial state of the nation has helped motivate americans to take democracy to the streets already. struggling. los angeles
ramon go indo art. well author and activist david swanson is among those demonstrating in the capital washington d.c. he told r.t. the congressman should get ready for more protest driven not by a leader but by the cars we got here to washington on october sixth and congress left town and they get back on tuesday and so tuesday morning is when we really begin to bring our grievances to our government so we're just getting ready to get started and we have no intention of going anywhere anytime soon when we march through the streets of this city and i've heard stories from other cities people who join in the march we shout where the ninety nine percent and so are you and they cheer and they join in and we applaud them people honk their horns not in anger at the traffic jam but in solidarity we're beginning to realize that it's not our personal problems in our household but that everybody shares these problems when c.n.n. demands our leader i'm reminded of the u.s.
army demanding a chief from american indians who didn't have one we don't need that we don't need that imposed on us we're working to avoid having a leader people who saw a politician like barack obama as a leader are very disillusioned right now and that's good they've got that right we don't need a leader we need an agenda and we have. military government has vowed to tighten its grip on power following a wave of violent clashes twenty six people were killed and hundreds hurt when troops broke up a peaceful protest by coptic christians military vehicles charge through a crowd and plowed into people while troops fired rubber bullets and tear gas the first pharaohs were held at cairo's main coptic cathedral on monday with a church strongly criticizing the egyptian government for allowing repeated attacks on the christian minority one based investigative journalist simon asaf told r.t. that the army's brutal tactics are leading to the mobilization of anti revolutionary forces and. you have the weakening of the forces the april
sixth movement and so on who made the original revolution their demonstrations getting smaller and smaller and in the middle of this we see the emergence of if you like. a kind of counter-revolutionary force beginning to formulate itself in the middle of these these clashes the state t.v. announces that christians are shooting that soldiers and they call on the population to come and help defend the army now this was a lot of the same time as this was taking place the minute you were going around closing down will be independent stations or the state itself but what is taking place here there is the side of a fabrication of a news site except there is a whipping up. of all the frustrated population against a very identifiable minority in this crisis the coptic christians and you seem to see a mobilization of anti revolutionary forces so beginning to like i think we've seen today well they call continuing clashes but to me appear direct sectarian attacks
on christian populations. now is a look at some other stories from around the world maybe a transitional government forces say they have cornered. have broken down the troops in several small areas of the colonel's hometown of syria but have a fighting continues as loyalists put up fierce resistance so far and the forces have captured the city's university conference center and main hospital where patients and doctors have been caught up in the conflict civilians are still trying to flee with manny fearing possible atrocities once the city is taken by the former rebels. the former bosnian serb army has been hospitalized with a long infection the sixty nine year old is currently on trial at the hague tribunal facing genocide war crimes and crimes against humanity charges lot of he's accused of being responsible for the siege of sarajevo and distributes a massacre in nine hundred ninety five during the bosnian war last week the former
general complained to the un court about his health and asked to be examined for kidney stones. hundreds of demonstrators clashed with police in the chilean capital santiago it follows a peaceful march for the day of the meeting of indigenous peoples which replaced the traditional columbus day march over seven thousand came to support indigenous rights but after protesters were stopped by security forces they started throwing rocks at police and armored vehicles police used tear gas and water cannon in response. well if it's a man's world as the song goes then maybe he won't be for much longer scientists say males are on the road to extinction as their genes are slowly fading away and disappears and with the whole world for a fully fledged sperm crisis russia could be effective words that most go reports. this is the spam hora do heads three tails or an inability to swim are becoming
almost the norm for modern man's sperm. what used to be perceived as infertility is now very different twenty years ago two hundred million bibles bramber minute i was considered normal today fifteen million is enough but proper sperm studies are not easy and haven't ever been conducted in russia until now that is a glimmer of was among the first only to find more than half of his fellow countrymen sperm didn't meet world health organisation standards that our study revealed not only quantity but the quality changes among russian men as their sperm literally swim in a toxic soup a whole range of poisonous substances including lead cadmium and even mercury was found in their semen and that's not all. it's been noted recently that any kind of stress such as war terrorist attacks a polluted environment at least a few of boys being born and more girls proving that the male chromosome is more
vulnerable to outside influences and fewer men now means even fewer down the generations just look at the sea of ribbons at the start of the new school year and it's clear girls in russia outnumber the boys. this may gaggles had five girls in the report with the elders earlier we simply wanted a baby never mind a boy or girl when you got pregnant with twins psychics swore they were boys and even advised the names at a german fair that now they are no lisa and this one older has been a guarantee to my feet and only maria was maria from the start i was happy to have another girl i would know what to do with a boy now a big happy family but when these girls are ready to start their own families will discover russian men are gang out faster than in any other country the total extinction of men may still be far off but the levels. the stuff round that you can find in places like this may soon become a rarity with growing mortality rates and life expectancy of russia dropping these
top guys are day three this village with the n. usual name of girls has seen better times when men from the village of boys across the river kept them company now only the girls are left. they say how is someone to do the stuff but who's there to hire. men in russia lived to sixty years on average women seventy two that twelve year difference makes the russian life expectancy the worst in the world and while scientists around the globe wreck their brains to save the human male russia's been doing little to preserve its man so there are no national programs aimed at men's health the chance of a russian man dying prematurely is twenty times higher than a man in europe such as the consequences of the social and economic stresses of the ninety nineties in russia as well as smoking and drinking and now that local
scientists have raised the alarm there might still be a chance that russian men will be around long enough to once again take the lead. r.t. moscow. whether we have our top stories in just a few moments right after the business news with dmitri. thanks mary hello and welcome to business see russia and china are creating a joint investment fund worth up to four billion dollars the deal will be sealed during russia's prime minister's visit to the second largest economy in the world the startup will be jointly run by the russian direct investment fund and the china investment corporation each have already allocated one billion dollars for the project least seventy percent of the funds money is expected to be invested in russia and former serious countries planning to start work early next year. russia looks likely to post
a budget surplus this year crude prices are balancing state spending which has risen in the relatively healthy outlook is likely to continue in twenty twelve unless the oil price crashes. from deutsche bank explains even with a significant increase in fiscal spending ahead of the elections at the end of this year there is a very high chance that russia will have a moderate but still a fiscal surplus by the end of this year in terms of the year two thousand and twelve the possibility to attain a surplus is also there obviously oil prices will have a lot to do with that but my sense is that given that we're going to be and the post electoral fiscal landscape after the elections it's going to be easier to control fiscal spending and that i think bodes well for the
attainment relatively good fiscal outcomes possible even in the positive zone with regard to the first call bounce next year. take a look at the markets this hour starting with commodities and oil prices are correcting slightly off the monday's rally light sweet is down nine cents brant is trading at one hundred eight dollars seventy two cents but. moving to stock markets now asia is rallying following a bullish session in the states banking shares soared in hong kong after china's state run central googy an investment board shares in the country's big four banks and what alice believe could be an effort to stabilize the financial system bank of china is up nine percent china construction corp is seven percent. one half hours ahead of the opening bell in moscow russian markets closed in the black on monday with the r.t.s. ending up more than four percent my sex more than two percent. the outlook for
russian equities remains mixed at best but the national capital believes it might be reasonable to start placing bets on europe beginning to solve its debt crisis the market this week is going to be focusing on what merkel and sarkozy said at the weekend in fact they promised a comprehensive package to underpin the banking sector in europe and as that is what's been driving all the negative sentiment we've seen in the last several weeks some hope that we could see some kind of resolution to that i think will help to support the market valuations are extremely cheap i think right now you see you see some of russian story trading at multiples that we've not seen for a very long time i think for the bra eve for those that are sitting very much in cash at the moment perhaps it's time to take a little bit more risk on board because if there is any hope. you can try and draw a line under the european banking sector then this would be an excellent entry
